    Hey everyone! Sorry I've been absent. Miss this place! Between consults, editing and shooting it was an 80 hour week last week. Didn't even turn the computer on yesterday. Needed to go off grid.

    Looking forward to seeing what everyone's been up to.

    In the mean time....

    Welcome back. I know about weeks like that... time off grid is a good thing sometimes!

    Nice shot. Very coy smile there. Very nice B&W.

    Bride and bridesmaids at the Gasworks Park being photographed with the city and Lake Union in the background. They were grouped really tight. Looks like she was using a short telephoto. They lucked out with the weather. Today's a nice November day. All with D3s; 70-300mm VR. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt.

    Been a while since I've contributed here...feeling like a slacker Did a night time shoot at the beach with beautiful Samantha. Two lights...one for the background and ring light for the key.

    No, I was referring to the bridal group shots, Matt

    Your pp somehow gave the shots a slightly ominous air, which suited fine.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Jason: Beautiful and very intense Black & White couple shot.
    Matt: Wonderful B&W bride and bridesmaids shots, and I agree with Jorgen the first one is very special, it has such strong subject separation.
    David: Nice that you are still shooting the D3 (I presume) along with your Medium Format rig really an excellent night time beach series, and excellent B&W conversion.


    Jason, Matt and David: I'd be curious to know what software you use for your Black & White conversions ?
    Personally I solely use Capture NX, but I admit that I could use a new NX version soon including NIK's best B&W conversion.
    With NX being Nikons dedicated NEF converter I think that Nikon owe us a new version soon with more dedicated B&W features, right ?


    Btw. Lloyd and Matt, thank you for your kind words.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Matt, thanks for the kind words.

    Steen, I'm still happily shooting the D3 and think it's the best of my systems for this kind of work. My eyesight is not good enough for me to get consistently accurate and critical focus in low light situations, e.g. the beach at night, so the MF and M9 kits stay at home. As far as conversions go I use LR3 for the import, cataloging, WB and exposure but prefer CS5 for any further editing, e.g. skin healing/smoothing, brightening eyes, etc. For B&W conversion I use either Nik's Silver Efex Pro or Alien Skin's Exposure 3 plug-ins with the nod going to Nik. These particular B&W shots were converted with Exposure but only because my companion shooter doesn't have the Nik plug-in and we wanted to give the model a consistent look so he did the editing (he's better than me by a big margin). My experience with Capture NX is limited but I found that while it does a very good job it's simply too slow for my workflow. Hope that helps.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Thanks a lot, David

    Funny thing is that Silver Efex Pro isn't even a plugin for NX, despite both being made by NIK ...
    I think Silver Efex simply ought to be a built in feature in the next version of NX.
    Wake up, Nikon, NX is supposed to be your dedicated software for your .NEF system files, right ...

    David, I feel for you... you know, having to suffer through such sessions with such unpleasant subjects.

    Really excellent work.

    Great catch Matt. These two especially. I love the separation that lens gives. Amazing for a "slow" lens, I think.

    Osman: My daughter was married a year ago on the 6th. Maybe, i was projecting? Just kidding. Thanks. I've been consciously trying to push my B & W's darker (see W. Eugene Smith's 1958-59 Haiti Photos from the Pychchiatric Institute ). I probably sense Fall coming.

    Steen: Thanks. I use LR3 and then Silver Effex Pro, occasionally the B&W conversion in Color Effex Pro, and some tweaking in CS5 and LightZone. I used NX initially, but found that LR was a great all-in-one product.

    Lloyd: Thank you! That lens is on my camera a lot because of it's versatility. I shoot it wide open and I'm rarely disappointed with it (maybe me, but not it).

    Oh yeah! I love this. But I would want to play with it. This whole series is wonderful but they all appear dark to me, as if the light's getting squashed.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    That's a true Viablex shot, Matt. Great !
    And that goes for the picture with the King pamphlets as well

    With regards to the control room shot Exif says 21mm, are we talking ZF here, or 14-24mm Nikkor ?
    Also Exif says shutterspeed 183 seconds ... was the exposure really that long

    Hacker, I agree with Lloyd and Osman, that's really a wonderful and lovely portrait of the little girl, your daughter I presume ?

    On Guard!

    At the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway Gala this afternoon.

    Attachment 34924

    The car is a Stanley steamer.

    This was another exhibit, a Ford model T (or possibly a TT, which I think was the designation for the commercial truck/bus chassis)

    Great portrait of a cute girl, Hacker.

    Very nice perspective and lighting on the control room shot, Matt.
